Top Spanish bullfighter gored in Mexico

Top Spanish bullfighter gored in Mexico

The manager for one of Spain's top bullfighters says the matador is in serious condition after suffering a horrendous goring during a fight in Mexico.
Salvador Boix says matador Jose Tomas lost up to eight liters of blood after a nearly 1,100-pound (500-kilogram) bull named Navegante gored him in the left groin Saturday in the city of Aguascalientes, penetrating 4 inches (10 centimeters) and puncturing a vein and an artery. Boix spoke Sunday to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
Tomas has a relatively rare blood type _ A+ _ and bled so profusely that bullring officials appealed over the arena loudspeakers for compatible donors to come forward, Boix said.
Tomas was operated on immediately at the bullring and then again at a hospital for more than three hours.
